Success on Mt. Whitney

September 22nd, 2009

On the last day of summer 2009 two friends (Lynn and Gary Clark) and I completed a day hike up on Mt. Whitney. It was a very long day, a 14h roundtrip with a pre-dawn start (7.5h up, 1h top, 5.5h down). The weather was perfect – as is often the case this time of the year – with great visibility, warm, sunny and dry with hardly any wind.

Mt. Whitney, the highest point of the lower 48 States, marks the 3rd of my Panamerican Peaks. It’s next nearest higher mountain (parent peak) is Pico Orizaba in Mexico, my 4th Panamerican Peak.

Here is the Mt. Whitney Picasa photo album.
